About directing YKB Rituja says:
I am extremely humbled to be a part of Yoni Ki Baat 2012. My journey with YKB started in 2009, when a friend invited me to see the show. I was enthralled by the raw power, the energy and the naked truth of the stories. I felt like I had found something that I wanted to be a part of. I subsequently became a participant in YKB 2010 and 2011. We have started our journey towards YKB 2012. It is already proving to be an enriching journey. We hope you can join us!
